Thousands of house and garden plants, landscape design consultations, butterfly releases, museum tours and more are on tap when the Spring Garden & Butterfly Festival returns to the Cuyamaca College campus for its 26th year on April 27.

Several thousand visitors from throughout the region and beyond are expected to visit the college, which houses The Water Conservation Garden and the Heritage of the Americas Museum, and all three have planned an array of family friendly events. Old Town Trolley Tours of San Diego will provide free, narrated rides to and from the garden, the museum and the college, and the Cuyamaca College Ornamental Horticulture Department will hold its largest plant sale of the year.
